This is hands down the best place to go canoe camping, or any camping for that matter. We had an awesome time. We picked up the canoe and paddled about an hour and a half to our campsite at Broody Brook. There was not a soul around! Just us with a sweet spot right next to the lake. The sunset...

You have to like simplicity to enjoy this place. We do and we did. No running water, electricity or garbage pick up. Just gorgeous views, quiet streams, hiking, kayaking...we booked thinking we would drive down to hike Katahdin one morning but found out it's 1:20 to Katahdin Stream parking and you must arrive by 6:30am to get a spot. Or...

Quiet campground in a lovely area of the park. Friendly ranger. Kids loved frogs at the pond (leech free,) canoe trip ($1 an hour - go all the way to the next pond, you have to drag the canoe through a shallow area - fun and worth it!) No running water, trash cans or flush toilets. Bring bug spray. Junior...

Wonderfully quiet campground in the northern end of the park. Primitive camping only (no electricity/no showers/pit toilets). No pets allowed. Only the lean-to sites have water views of South Branch Pond, the rest of the sites are in the woods. Some sites are very close together and would be suitable for people camping together -- 4 and 5, 6 and...

We hiked the falls and it was incredible. It was an hour and a half hike to the falls. It has breathtaking views and was kid friendly. There were lots of rock steps and easy trails but it was a good elevation on the way up. We had a blast. This is just one of many trails available. What a...

Beautiful trails everywhere-( easy, moderate or difficult.) and several lakes. Free canoes with cabins. Daicey and Kidney Lake are fly fishing only. .Primitive cabins only in park but awesome, scenic setting. If you want to get away from it all this is it. .My wife and I had a great time..

First time to Baxter after we put it on the list a few years back. It's a bit out there but that helps to keep the crowds away. We lucked out with reservations as we're not from Maine and the reservation process favors Maine residents (it's a mail in system so you're basically part of a lottery). Anyway, we got...

We had a great time at katahdin stream campground. The place was clean and quiet. If you are a true outdoor person you will love staying here. You have to bring all your water and pack out trash. The latrines were good as far as latrines go. Wood is cheap. We walked to grassy pond and canoed for only one...

WE arrived a day early at the park. The campground was full but we were lucky and snagged a cabin instead. WE had a beautiful setting on a lake with mountains in the background. When visiting the park plan extra time for the drive in. the road into the park is a dirt road. The drive to our cabin took...

Located in the northern section of the park next to Lower South Branch Pond. Well kept, clean camp ground with a mix of lean to's and campsites. Drive in access. No running water. Outhouses only (compared to those found elsewhere on the appalachain trail, these were very clean.) Campsites were a bit close together. Would recommend any of the lean...
